the ryans and the cruzes are more connected to where people really live. i'm not saying this president is unattractive and people want to continue watching believe that he could unite, but at every turn, he does not unite. he does divide. we're going backwards in the sense of we're identifying by our color and our gender and our income and our region. and it's just -- i would argue that the democrats have moved away from the mainstream way more than the republicans have. and i keep coming back to the state argument. they will -- we are coming up on a midterm. we have a number of democrats that have won in states. the majority of them that mitt romney won by double digitses. with the possible exception of north carolina. those democrats that are in the senate, the senate's not done its job. the house republicans have passed a budget. the senate has not passed a budget since obamacare was passed. those senate democrats that were just elected like heidi heitkamp or claire mccaskill, they're not going to support this president's agenda. those up for re-election cannot support it.

saw one possibility, which was paul ryan and others within the republican party saying to the caucus, we can't win this fight publicly. let the debt ceiling go because we're going to be blamed for the economic fallout. let's push that down the road, kick the can down the road, as they say, and try to get some budget out of the senate and try to get some real spending cuts in the next three months. so paul ryan and others within the caucus are seeing a longer game here than is this freshman senator from texas. >> but if you ask paul ryan what he wants to do on gun control, he would say, i don't want to do anything on gun control. you've talked to moderate republicans -- >> what about registration? >> the only thing they might do is something on registration. >> background checks. >> that's it. no idea that you're banning weapons. no chance. >> registration is the worst. >> put it on tape. 0% chance it passes. >> good, because hunters need 30 bullets. >> if you've seen a single republican say they support that -- >> a democratic lobbyist last night working on this very issue, he

popped up a story about how speaker boehner, with the help of paul ryan, turned around a conference that was ready to go off the next cliff. they wanted to shut down the government. they wanted to default on america's debt. at that williamsburg retreat, he walked them through what the consequences of that was, showed them polling about the blame that they would take for it, let them talk instead of imposing a solution on them. and very calmly, with paul ryan being the key salesman because of his credibility with conservatives, convincing them to go ahead with this three-month extension that joe, you say, is a smart idea. >> it is a smart idea. and this morning, you know, we were talking about chris christie being one of the favorites in 2016. "politico" this morning's going behind the curtain again with a question that everybody in washington's asking. are the democrats going to be putting up joe biden for president in 2016? here's how the vice president answered that question when asked yesterday. >> is there any reason you wouldn't run? >> oh, there's a whole lot of reasons why i

the op-ed page of "the wall street journal" this morning. ryan smith is a marine infantrymen that served in iraq. he writes about "the reality that awaits women in combat. societal norms are a reality, and their maintenance is important to most members of a society. despite the professionalism of marines, it would be zrakting and traumatizing to be forced to be naked in front of the opposite sex, particularly when your body has been ravaged by lack of hygiene. in the reverse, it would be painful to witness a member of the opposite sex in such an uncomfortable and awkward position. combat effectiveness is based in large part on unit cohesion. the relationships among members of a unit can be irreparably harmed by forcing them to violate societal norms." >> can we have an honest conversation about this? is there a point to be made there? >> first of all, when you're a serviceman like him, his opinion is meaningful whether you agree or disagree. we've got to show him that respect. i'm assuming that once that uniform goes on, the gender lines change. obviously, i've never been in comba

at mitt romney but paul ryan, who he will be dealing with. >> when you have a guy who has bullied you in the schoolyard for four years and you finally fight the bully and you beat them like he just did in this election, you're not as afraid of the bully as you was or at least cautious. i think they bullied this president. he went to the mat and re-elected with a wider margin than george bush and saying the bullying is over. we're either going to fight or work together. >> the problem is both sides feel like they were bullied over the past four years and they've got to figure out how to work together over the next four years. i want to talk about yesterday with you quickly and open it up. it struck me as a son of the south, like you, son of the south, second inaugurations struck me as actually more remarkable moment in the history of race relations, because when the president was inaugurated the first time, we all stopped, kind of like everybody in america was collectively at time square looking up at the ticker that said, war is over, we stopped. the second time, i was walking past th

will that the clintons now bring, so much good will that paul ryan this week is running around saying if only clinton were in office, we could get all these things taken care of. it's incredible. she's on another hillary clinton roll. >> do you think there is an appreciation for them, probably the two most scrutinized people, lives written about incessantly and relate to each other in a way you can't relate to any else. >> that's right. having never experienced it, i presume. >> do you see any way hillary clinton can't run for president given her standing while she leaves office her standings higher than anybody in politics, how could she not run? >> she could not run if she doesn't feel up to it. that doesn't mean she feels ill. that kind of campaign, as everybody knows, is a two or three year marathon killer. if she simply decides that's not something she's prepared to sustain, that's a good answer. >> i want to get to gene's column as well writing in the "washington post" about the republican party's lost ways. republicans shouldn't worry president obama is trying to destroy the go
